Amanda practices Hypnotherapy, Neuro Linguistic Programming and Counselling, and has an excellent background in psychological areas. Her special interest is working with children and teenagers, but also enjoys working with phobias and trauma addictions. She has a very person-centred approach with clients, and her gentle and open methods are key to her positive counselling techniques. Amanda's approachable nature is key and crucially all of her work is done in the strictest confidence.
Amanda originally worked in the voluntary sector as a counsellor whilst bringing up her three children. When they became less dependant, Amanda trained as a Clinical Hypnotherapist to further the work she most enjoys - helping people to be fulfilled and happy and to achieve their best.
She enjoys working with teenagers and children as she feels the benefit of positive counselling and NLP can really make a difference to their lives. Amanda also enjoys using NLP and hypnotherapy to assist in difficult lifestyle changes, such as giving up smoking.
